Hi first time posting on here so please be gentle with me.
was diagnosed with fibro about 2 years ago. It was all a bit of a whirlwind I had been to my Drs with what I thought was bursitis but when I mentioned that I was having difficulty walking due to pain and that I had tender points all round my pelvis not just on my hips he immediately said I think you have fibro. I had never heard of it before. Within 3 months I saw the rheumatologist who confirmed my gp's initial diagnosis.
I was put on pregabalin and now take 450mg a day which seems to keep the worst of my pain at bay. But not always which is where the cocodamol come in.
Im 45 and live in Macclesfield Cheshire with my wonderful husband and my not quite so wonderful 17 year old daughter who causes me more stress and headaches than anything else. But that is a whole other story!.
I have only met 2 people from Macclesfield who have fibro and one of them is Canadian! There must be other fibro suffers in the area but they seem to remain stubbornly hidden,
